Frontier Agriculture customer statement regarding Covid-19 Coronavirus
Published 19th March 2020
Frontier’s number one priority will always be the health and safety of our colleagues, customers and those with whom we have contact during our normal business operations.
We are actively and continuously monitoring the situation and basing our actions on the very latest advice from Government. These actions currently include a range of measures such as minimising the number of people at our sites, colleagues working from home where possible, implementing social distancing measures and self-isolating when necessary.
We have also implemented service contingency plans in order that we can continue to deliver a service which is ‘business as usual’ albeit it with some changes to the way we operate.
Our aim throughout this will be to deliver a full service and support to our customers. We will be reducing face to face contact wherever we can but most of our commercial colleagues are already equipped for home working and all are able to keep in touch with their customers via phone, email and video.
Frontier agronomists will continue to field walk but face to face meetings may temporarily be replaced by a phone or even video call. Meanwhile, farm traders will still be monitoring the markets and trading grain with their customers.
Our operations, logistics and admin team are implementing measures to ensure we continue to operate, especially as we enter the height of the inputs season.
These are unprecedented times and we are all no doubt going to face challenges in the coming weeks and months. The most important thing we can all do is stay connected as much as we can as we adapt to new ways of working.
In practical terms, by staying in close contact with your Frontier/SOYL and Kings contacts, you can help us by ensuring we are aware of your requirements as soon as possible; you can rest assured we will all be doing all that we can to deliver on them despite the challenges.
Thank you for your continued custom.
Managing Director, Frontier Agriculture
